The Christmas Room - Cathrine Anderson

4 Stars!

Widow Maddie McLendon has uprooted her life to move to Rustlers Gulch with her son and grandson. But as a brutal Montana winter looms on the horizon, contractors have yet to break ground on their new house, leaving them to live in a makeshift camp of trailers, tents, and sheds....

Since his wife died six years ago, millionaire rancher Sam Conacher has been content to wallow in his grief alone while keeping a tight rein on his twenty-six-year-old daughter. But now the girl has gone and fallen in love with his foolish new neighbor's no-good son....

Maddie and Sam will never see eye to eye on anything, until a near-tragedy gives them a true glimpse into each other's souls. And as the first snowflakes begin to fall, they'll discover that an open heart is the biggest gift of all....

Catherine Anderson is the author of more than thirty New York Times bestselling and award-winning historical and contemporary romances, including Mulberry Moon, New Leaf, Silver Thaw, Walking on Air, and Cheyenne Amber, among others.

MY THOUGHTS - Book 4 of my Holiday reading!
Very heartwarming story. This one gave me a great big Christmas hug. This was like getting two love stories under one cover. First you have Cam and Kirstin, they are both very sweet and likable - then you have Maddie (Cam's mother) and Sam the grouchy land owner/rancher. I love that Maddie doesn't take his crap and just dishes it right back at him.

Another added bonus, at least for me is - the author gives us several POV. You get to see the story from the eyes of all the players even 16 yr old Caleb (whom I loved as well).

It was a little slow at times (except maybe the bull moose attack LOL) but did pick up half way through. This it was a real nice, sweet but sad in spots - easy flowing Christmas story that will definitely warm your heart for the season.
Grab your cup of hot cocoa or coffee or wine and curl up by your Christmas tree and enjoy the read!
